Lonely Walk talk the talk

Lonely Walk – Complaints This is one of the finest tunes I’ve heard thus far in 2017, it’s a distorted, dangerously controlled beauty.

Here’s my Best Homage to Albion

Albion – Fåglarna (The Birds) This is the eerie, elegant, ethereal and [that’s enough E words. Ed.] Fåglarna (Hybris) by Sweden’s Albion, alias of Erik Blohmé.
